[ I like the clearer explanation --RR ]

From: Stewart Smith <stewart@linux.org.au>

  as per thread on lkml a little while ago, a better explanation
  of the X86_GENERIC config option follows. The person who questioned
  it originally seemed to like this improved version, so that's one point :)

 config X86_GENERIC
        bool "Generic x86 support"
- Including some tuning for non selected x86 CPUs too.
- when it has moderate overhead. This is intended for generic
- distributions kernels.
+ Instead of just including optimizations for the selected
+ x86 variant (e.g. PII, Crusoe or Athlon), include some more
+ generic optimizations as well. This will make the kernel
+ perform better on x86 CPUs other than that selected.
+ This is really intended for distributors who need more
+ generic optimizations.
 # Define implied options from the CPU selection here
